Coming February 8: Our First Human Library

You’ve heard of audio books. You’ve heard of talking books. But have you encountered a Human Library? That’s where human books take reading to a whole new level of interaction.

The UIW Honors Program will be hosting a Human Library on its main campus Wednesday, February 8, from 4-7pm. Get more details here on topics and book check-out times.

If you’ve ever wished for an opportunity to talk to someone in the middle of a transgender transition, a civil rights movement, or recovery from addiction, you can do it at a Human Library.  At a Human Library™ real people are on loan to readers like you, ready to accept your questions about the topics they represent. There is no admission fee, and parking is available free of charge on the UIW campus. We'll update the website as details unfold.
